Q. How can I care for an aloe vera plant that seems to have a wilting leaf?

Is it worth tying the limp leaf up to the remaining leaves? Would it be detrimental to the plant to pull this leaf out? If I do pull it out, will it produce additional leaves? (which it has not done it quite some time).I do not over water it, and it seems to get plenty of sunlight, yet one of the leaves falls limp and is basically flattened. I can send a picture of it if necessary.


You may not have much luck in "pulling" the leaf off. You can cut it off at the base if it is unsightly. Make sure the top edge of the container allows enough space for the leaf to arch over it. It may have been planted too deeply in the container which can cause either rot if it is in contact with the soil or damage to the leaf if it's in contact with the edge of the container.
